Students can work with counselors to clarify their career and personal goals. The office provides a variety of services for students including, assistance with résumé and cover letter writing, interview preparation, internship resources, graduate school resources and job coordination. In addition, individual counseling is available for students who need to speak about issues that may be affecting their academic, social and emotional well-being. Students with disabilities can also meet with a counselor to coordinate appropriate accommodations with regard to their academic program.
Our counselors are here to help students with the résumé writing process, advise students as they prepare for interviews and provide guidance with graduate school, internship and job resources. In addition, the office provides information on the many career events that take place in the area and on campus.
Wellness services have been created to provide a range of services and programs that support the holistic development of all students in body, mind and spirit. Wellness classes and programs are specifically designed to address the needs of the student population. All services are confidential and free of charge.
Counselors are available to meet with students to help them explore issues that may be affecting their academic and personal lives. Counselors will work to help students learn to cope with these issues more effectively. Individual and group counseling, crisis intervention, meditation and yoga training, consultation and assessment services are available to help students deal with problems and difficulties they are facing.
Health services are available to meet the needs of students who require copies of their immunization records and who are in need of taking a medical leave of absence. Nurses are available on both campuses to address health related issues and provide health education to all students.
Assistance is available for students with disabilities who request accommodations. Counselors will advocate for the student and work with their professors to meet individual student needs. Students with disabilities are guided and empowered to be their own best advocates.
